Williston, North Dakota 2.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 10, 2018) Williston is a place that I've called home for many years and plan to call it home for many more. Too many things have been said about growth and yet this city still breaks all of the odds. To have it's own International Airport says alot, and the eateries are spectacular.

I do
...Read More enjoy traveling, and I also enjoy eating out regularly. I would take both please! I think some of the best restaurants can be found along 26th street. Taking the bus, cab, or just driving can be a great means of transportation. Think of it like this, a small city wearing big city britches.

I know of no other Walmarts with the customer service like the one on 44th st. They are friendly and will service your every need. I know I have furnished my entire home with Wal-Mart items and I am thankful for the beautiful city of Williston. It is truly an amazing visit. Read Less
